“Welcome to our 12th May International Nursing Day 2021 celebration”
This year’s International Nurses Day celebration will be special to all of us. First of all because last year we had to cancel the physical event due to restrictions, but still managed to mark the day by going online. Secondly, this year’s event will also mark the 1-year anniversary of our campaign, Caring4Nurses, which allows us to look back on the year and beyond into the future.
Topics we will focus on for this year’s International Nurses Day will include:Now the applause has faded away, do we sense a new atmosphere in the EU on the recognition of the specialist nurse? COVID-19 has had a great impact on our professionals and organisations. It is important to reflect on this, but also cherish the visibility and leadership our professions have gained and capitalise on it to build the future working environment and recognition we want and deserve.
The Specialist Nurse engage in the #Hyperchats are going to be the VIP’s.
This will be a hybrid event with a small group of representatives and the technical team connecting from Brussels and all participants.
Connecting from wherever they are in the world, may it be from home or hospitals, in a train or bus, and in a group or alone, join us where ever you are.

Location : hybrid – online and in Brussels
This will be a hybrid event, together with specialist nurses from all over the world, where ever they are together with online and the ESNO board, special invites, moderators and ZN the technical team, in the THON hotel in Brussels.
With this hybrid event we also wishing to give a gentle push to the “we’re back” the specialist nurses first out and first back. We must be modest but also wish to showcase the trust we have in each other and the motivation that we also need to be there as nurses also for those not at the hospital but in recognition for all this been working at the background, policy, industry, management and so on. Because, at the end, we are all together in this crisis and we’re all together to overcome this crisis.
